Anti-Virus Software

Hi, can anyone recommend a free downloadable anti-virus software which isn't to complicated and "quietly gets on with the job".

1) you ge what you pay for

2) if you 'let it get on with the job' you'll never get updates, in which case you may as well not bother.

maybe should start a new thread but can you run more than one Anti virus program? Answer is probably yes, so is it wise to do so?

No!, No!, No!

Only if you want to slow your system to a crawl.

Anti-virus programs chase each others tails if more than one is installed (sorry to be so technical).

you get what you pay for.

You pay nothing, you get inadequate protection.

NAV is about £35.00 less then 10p per day.
